Wow, this is a great deal.
McDonald’s is offering any size soft drink for only $1!
The McDonald’s website tells us that “No meal is complete without a drink!”
Well, I’ll take their word for it…load me up.
You can get a large (that’s 32 ounces) Coke, Sprite, Sweet Tea, or even a Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, for only $1.
The Coke will deliver 310 calories and 86 grams of sugar to your stomach, while a Sweet Tea clocks in at a slim 280 calories and 69 grams of sugar. For the most bang for your buck, get the Hi-C Orange Lavaburst for 350 calories and 94 grams of sugar.
For comparison purposes, 94 grams of sugar is equal to 23 sugar cubes! 3.3 ounces of sugar. That’s just shy of 1/2 CUP of sugar.
Isn’t this just what America needs? Cheap, quart-sized sodas for a buck so we can fill our bellies with high-fructose corn syrup?
Oh, the Hi-C Orange Lavaburst even tosses in a bit of “glycerol ester of wood rosin”. Mmmm…i’m lovin’ it!
The Coke, Sprite and Hi-C all have more calories than a strawberry sundae, hamburger or Egg McMuffin.
32 ounces of flavored sugar-water for a dollar.
Now, if they’d only offer syringes of insulin for a buck…coming soon!
It all kind of makes me want to sing: “i’m luggin’ it…bada bap bap ba…”
Tomorrow morning I’ll be heading over to IHOP for All You Can Eat Pancakes for $4.99…
One thing’s for sure…I won’t be hopping.
